Exciting News!



I have had the hardest time keeping this secret but I can finally let the cat out of the bag. I am honored to be part of the Design Team for Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Woohoo! She has some of the cutest digis around. You can buy her stamps two ways - Lindsay's Stamp Stuff store on MyGraphicO or at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff at Shop Homemade where the every day sale is spend $5 and get a free digital stamp . Watch for Lindsay's blog post introducing the rest of the team.

I used Lindsay's Sketchy Leaves set to make this card. Thank goodness I don't need a sympathy card right now but I wanted to make one to have ready when needed. These beautiful stamps can be used for so many different things.

The layout is from Mercy's Sketch Challenge MTSC46 . I also used the cracked glass technique because I love the look of cracked glass with the autumn leaves. If you haven't tried it, you can find a tutorial on SplitcoastStampers.

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Card base Paper Basics kraft cardstock from Papertrey

Welcome to the team! Love the leaves - and you're right, the cracked glass effect works perfectly with them.

Berry the Snowman

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
